Course Description: This is a course in infinite series and integral calculus where you will learn about antiderivatives and their applications as well as the magic of infinite series and how they approximate transcendental functions! Calculators will not be permitted on exams, but in order to see the calculus, you must have a graphing application in the lecture hall. By the end of the course, students should able to compute integrals, solve first order differential equations, compute volumes, write Taylor polynomials, and distinguish between the two “opposing forces” in calculus, namely convergence and divergence. There will be a focus on concepts and theory as well as computations and applications. Topics will be addressed numerically, algebraically, and graphically. This is an exciting 3 credit course which will require a great deal of your attention! Attendance at every lecture is essential.
